The "mother of all" conceit in the title is appropriate in this case. Implying, as it does, that this is either the only book that you will ever need, or that all other books are pale imitation is a rather dangerous position to take. After all, as Microsoft itself can attest, when you are playing King of the Hill and scramble to the top, everyone else is more than willing to push you off. This Windows 95 guide, though, does have something for just about everyone. Leonhard and Simon have a track record for producing "hacker" books: the kind of information needed by people who think "power users" are ignorant flakes. This text follows in that same line. Chapter eleven, on the Registry, is not something that many users will ever try in ... Rest of this review on the detail page

Microsoft Windows has always been complicated, and the latest version of this top-selling consumer operating system ranks as the most bewildering to date. While the upgrade is very powerful, most users don't know what Object Linking and Embedding (OLE) is or how to use adjustable font tracking. Woody Leonhard and Barry Simon--experienced Windows professionals, who write for respected industry magazines--explain these things and more in the thorough and often hilarious The Mother of All Windows 98 Books. This omnibus Windows 98 how-to book documents the entire operating system, explaining everything from how to double-click to how to pull off the coolest hacks by editing the Registry. Along the way, the authors give advice on installing Wind... Rest of this review on the detail page

Part one is an overview, both of security and Windows NT. Chapter one's presentation of security basics has many good points, but also some unfortunate gaps and errors. The review of security concepts in NT provides a good grounding in how the matter is seen from Microsoft's perspective in chapter two. (It also has a rather interesting quick introduction to firewalls.) The NT architecture overview in chapter three does not really concentrate on security topics. When it does, the coverage of access control is reasonably clear, if not terribly readable. The Implementation of security, in part two, explains individual functions well but does not provide conceptual frameworks for security operations. Most of the material does provide th...

Network administration is a complex task. Only a small portion of that task is involved with knowing the specific commands and references for a given network operating system. Therefore, if you are an experienced Novell NetWare administrator, as Thompson points out, you already have a great deal of background that is directly relevant to managing a network based on Windows NT servers. Thompson only partially delivers on his promise to leverage that experience. The first two chapters, introducing Windows NT Server and Microsoft's networking architecture, do provide meaningful and useful comparisons of the two systems. In both text and tables the functions, features, strengths, and weaknesses of the two systems are contrasted. After th... Rest of this review on the detail page
